The film takes place in a WWI trench, where five diverse individuals have been unwillingly thrust together. Despising one another at first, the five protagonists come to realize that they must learn to get along if they hope to survive. The pacifistic sentiments (not to mention the ethnic mix) of Niemansland would be verboten by the Nazi regime within a few years after its original 1931 release; indeed, all copies of this film were ordered to be destroyed by propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels.

Work is beginning to transform the eloquent yet arcane texts called "library cataloging records" into data elements that will play well in the Web. Beginning with the upcoming revised cataloging rules, called Resource Description and Access, a team of researchers is exploring the abstract model behind bibliographic description. Coyle will cover the philosophy behind the project and will discuss current progress and goals, as well as fears, risks, and even some confusion.

The Great Sadini finds a young man passed out from hunger on the carnival grounds and takes him inside to his trailer. The boy, Hugo, proves to be simple. His first thought on waking is that he is dead and that Sadini and his wife are the devil and an angel. He's nearly right -- but he has the roles reversed. Sadini's compassion prompts him to take the kid under his wing and teach him about magic. From Imdb This Is one of the two PD Alfred Hitchcock Presents episodes

THE BLACK MUSEUM Opening in 1875, the Crime Museum at Scotland Yard is the oldest museum in the world purely for recording crime. The name "Black Museum" was coined in 1877 by a reporter from "The Observer", a London newspaper, although the museum is still referred to as the Crime Museum. It is this museum that inspired The Black Museum radio series, produced in London by Harry Alan Towers. From Jay Hickerson's "The Ultimate History of Network Radio Programming and...

Failed TV pilot from 1950 called "Let's Join Joanie". Two years before she starred in the semi-popular 50's sitcom "I Married Joan", Joan Davis did this unsuccessful pilot. I don't know much about this pilot, Which curiously runs 33 minutes long despite the fact that it features no commercials. Don't watch it expecting comedy gold, But it does have historic value, and is kinda amusing. The picture quality is horrible. I plan to upload a better file, but the picture quality...

There was a revival of the series in 1973 when radio was attempting to bring back radio drama and it lasted until 1975. The show occupied numerous time slots through out its run in the 50's and thus was never able to generate a large following. X Minus One was an extension of Dimension X which aired on NBC from 1950-51. The first fifteen scripts used for X Minus...
